A Woman Alone: Autobiographical Writings
Journalistic sketches, essays and personal notes form a biographical study of South African born Bessie Head's complex existence. Born in 1937, the result of an illicit union between a black man and a white woman, Bessie spent her early years in South Africa, a period of exile in Botswana (1964-79) and was a Botswana citizen before her death at the age of 49.
